SCOTT SLANT: Doutrive eases in, Broncos roll

Presented by RIB SHACK BARBECUE & CATERING. Thursday, January 7, 2021. The drip-drip-drip of Air Force’s offense bothered Boise State in spurts Wednesday night, but the Broncos ultimately overwhelmed the Falcons in a 78-59 win in ExtraMile Arena. It was Boise State’s ninth win in a row, one short of the school record. The Falcons…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Moore and Dickey may have matched

SCOTT SLANT: Moore and Dickey may have matched

Presented by the ASHLEY INN OF CASCADE. Wednesday, January 6, 2021. Troy Aikman is high on Kellen Moore. But Boise State probably isn’t high on Aikman and his view on what happened with Moore in the Broncos’ coaching search. And some are once again saying Aikman is wrong when he claims Moore accepted the Broncos’…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Determined Dickey digs in

Presented by RIB SHACK BARBECUE. Tuesday, January 5, 2021. Jeramiah Dickey was emotional and sincere while introducing himself as Boise State’s new athletic director at his press conference Monday. He had to win the day, and I think he did. Dickey talked a lot about family and winning championships and elite facilities. “We will be…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: There’s a supervisor now

Presented by MAZ-TECH AUTOMOTIVE. Monday, January 4, 2021. Only time well tell, but Boise State appears to have made a solid athletic director hire in Baylor associate vice president for athletics Jeramiah Dickey. The process was kept under wraps—Dickey’s name didn’t even surface until New Year’s Day—but it was a process, and I respect that.…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Hurry up and wait

Presented by BBSI BOISE. Wednesday, December 30, 2020. (TOM SCOTT’S COLUMN WILL RETURN MONDAY.) What can we say that hasn’t already been said about the Boise State search for a football coach, especially the Kellen Moore-Andy Avalos angle? We may be biding our time through the weekend. First of all today, it’s hard to get…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: The ‘Jerry Factor’

Presented by MAZ-TECH AUTOMOTIVE. Tuesday, December 29, 2020. There’s a reason they call AT&T Stadium outside Dallas “Jerry World.” It’s kind of Jerry Jones’ world down there. So it figures that the Cowboys owner can be persuasive when he wants to be. Could that apply to Jones’ desire to keep Kellen Moore in Dallas? According…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Two primo choices

Presented by BBSI BOISE. Monday, December 28, 2020. This little nugget was uncovered over the weekend by a KTVB collegeaue in an old Scott Slant column from January 24, 2018, almost three years ago. That’s when Kellen Moore transitioned from player to coach with the Dallas Cowboys. It went like this: “In the early days…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Just like that, an era is over

Presented by GREENWOOD’S SKI HAUS. Wednesday, December 23, 2020. (TOM SCOTT’S COLUMN WILL RETURN MONDAY.) The first tweet that we know of appeared Tuesday afternoon. “Sources: Auburn is narrowing in on hiring Boise State’s Bryan Harsin as its next head coach. A deal is expected soon,” posted Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports. That set off…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: These guys are good

Presented by BACON. Tuesday, December 22, 2020. One wonders: was the Las Vegas line on Monday night’s Boise State-New Mexico game laid down before or after oddsmakers knew Devonaire Doutrive would still be ineligible for the Broncos? Boise State was favored by 9.5 points with Doutrive still in street clothes in ExtraMile Arena. Well, without…MORE

SCOTT SLANT: Spartans a team of destiny

Presented by GREENWOOD’S SKI HAUS. Monday, December 21, 2020. It wasn’t that close. Were it not for four red zone defensive stands, the leg of Jonah Dalmas, and the legs of Avery Williams, there’s no telling what the 34-20 score would have morphed into in the Mountain West championship game Saturday. From Nick Starkel to…MORE
